The board of directors for Fallbrook’s Angel Society met on March 22 and awarded funds totaling $5,900 to nonprofit organizations that support the needs of the community. Funds were awarded to the following organizations:
• Fallbrook Union High School gymnastics team to help obtain new gym equipment such as mats, bars and a cover for their vault.
• Head Start to help them purchase educational materials such as painting easels and math games.
• North County Health Services to cover the cost of 40 vision screenings for children in the community.
• National Charity League “Kids on the Block” to provide funds to replace a very important puppet used in the volunteer program of women puppeteers. The program is made up of disabled and non-disabled puppets designed to teach what it is like to be different and to teach them tolerance.
• Boy Scouts of America to purchase materials for Joseph Noblit’s Eagle Scout project of placing interlocking bricks and erecting a small retaining wall for a picnic table at the Palomares House.
• Boy Scouts of America to purchase materials for Alex Kettenhofen’s Eagle Scout project of installing locking pavers at the Palomares House.
• The Fallbrook Art Association-Art Assist Program to purchase art supplies for teaching art to sixth grade students in our local schools. The Art Assist Program now provides art lessons in three schools. This funding will allow expansion of the project to a fourth school.
• The San Onofre School at Camp Pendleton to provide funds to take their fourth grade students to the USS Midway to study electricity and magnetism and to Dana Point Harbor to participate in the Ocean Institute’s program “Two Years Before the Mast.”
• Operation Clear Vision to provide eyewear for needy military dependents (E-6 and below).

All of the merchandise sold in the Angel Shop comes from community donations. The Angel Shop, located at 1002 South Main, is open for business Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
